Bit this next year? The kid is a freak, it will be interesting to see how he progresses. What say you guys?
From everything I've read if he can mature mentally then he will be in the mix for sure. I for one hope he puts it all together and has a monster season next year.
This spring should be very telling for Fanning. There are no doubts about his physical and athletic ability, but I have been told by some that they are still waiting for the "light bulb to come on".

hes fighting for that 3rd and 4th spot in the end rotation with pettway (if he stays at end), tomlinson and kirven...he better get it together mentally because this is a huge time for him and he doesnt want to get skipped by the younger guys
I'm taking the under on this one. Don't want to be Debbie Downer but DL has so much to do with attitude, determination and resilience. Lesser talented guys in his class seem to have passed him and aren't really looking back. Its easier to gain 30 lbs of good weight than it is to get hungry and stay that way. Nick Gentry had something that I see in a Pagan or a Pettway. Reports are that practice watchers have seen it in Tomlinson. No reports on Fanning, other than "if he can get his head in the right place"...
I'm think the light bulb will pop on this spring and when it does look out!!
One of the most athletic big men I have seen. Despite his size, he has a lean build.
Someone close to him on another site, said he finally gets it on and off the field. They expect him to start living up to his potential now...
Really rooting for Fanning, has the potential to be an absolute terror on DL, just needs to learn discipline.
Wasn't it LF that suplexed the Missouri kid? I don't know if it was a football move, but it was impressive to watch nonetheless.
The Dynasty is Here!
Yes it was Fanning.
It (the suplex in mop-up time) was perhaps support for both of your points above.
